主 题：Daily driving commute stressors and transformational leader behaviors: A daily diary study
主讲人：Jingjing Ma (PhD Candidate, Michigan State University)
Recent research has shown that there is considerable within-person variance in leadership behaviors that cannot be explained by chronic individual differences. Unfortunately, we lack sufficient understanding of dynamic, transient factors that may impact daily leader behaviors. In this presentation, I will present a daily diary study drawing from ego depletion theory that investigated relations of managers' commute stressors and depletion with transformational behaviors. The study found that managers' daily commute stressors were associated with increases in morning depletion. These increases in depletion were, in turn, associated with a lower likelihood of exhibiting transformational leader behaviors that day for managers who believed that willpower is a limited resource. However, this detrimental effect of depletion was avoided for managers who believed that willpower is not a limited resource. As time allows, I will also briefly discuss my dissertation.
